Chair Yoga


This class is taught by:

Karen Chase

Certified Core Integrated Alignment Yoga Instructor, Senior Student Teacher Mentor, Advisory Board Member
 
Karen's relationship with yoga began in 2007 while she was pregnant with her second child, Finn. With an emergent toddler at home, she looked forward to the beautiful space cultivated during yoga, allowing her time to connect with her baby boy in utero, while reaping the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of practice. Though the demands of her expanding family caused a temporary “breakup” with yoga, Karen eventually returned to her practice as a compliment to her fitness regimens and was happy to finally introduce yoga to her family.
Karen began her teaching practice during her YTT program with CoreWorks Institute, and then immediately following graduation, she joined the Sweetwater Yoga Teaching Tribe. Karen believes very strongly in the power of yoga to be a catalyst to both physical and emotional healing as well as to foster a greater spiritual connection. Karen gears her classes to all levels and uses an empowering approach which allows practitioners the opportunity to fully explore all dimensions of yoga in a compassionate and nurturing environment while honoring their individual needs and desires.
Karen is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with almost 10 years experience in providing hospice care. She embraces the beautiful irony of leaving a career which supported people on a path to a pain-free, peaceful, and dignified death to helping people live a full and vibrant life through the ancient and honorable practice of yoga. Off the mat, Karen enjoys multiple forms of fitness; spending time with her husband Leif and their three children; photography; live music; gardening; and the art of Zendoodle.

I had been practicing yoga for about 3 years when I walked into Sweetwater Yoga & Fitness and instantly fell in love!  The community was so warm and inviting and the yoga felt good on my achy body. I love it so much and am excited to share this brand of yoga with the Sweetwater and Parkside communities. Im not sure where this path is leading me, but the life changing experiences and devoted and uplifting friendships I've found here have encouraged me in ways that are unexplainable. I can't wait to share space with you! See you in class! 

Amber Williams

Certified Core Integrated Alignment Yoga Instructor & Student Teacher Mentor

Amber is a woman that has a diverse subset of passions; when she’s not practicing yoga she’s a mother of two beautiful girls, a wife and a registered dental hygienist. The glue holding it together is centered in her faith and her deep introspective awareness she’s made through yoga. Her journey to find this practice was quite beautiful and all started when she moved to Orlando in 2008 where she met her future husband, Kyle. They soon were married and started a family. The American dream was coming true but after the birth of her first child she was searching for a renewed physical and emotional connection. She did something pretty cool: she went to a yoga class - by herself. This was the beginning of a new chapter in Amber’s life and carried over into her eventual yoga home at Sweetwater. Yoga offers many gifts, one of which brings about a new realization, helping her to recognize energetic parts of herself that she didn’t know were there. Yoga gives us all the opportunity to explore our authenticity and cultivate mindfulness and intuition. This practice continues to inspire and nurture the desires of Ambers heart and she is honored and excited to share her personal journey and enthusiasm with the Sweetwater/Parkside communities. 
This 50 minutes class will stretch your hips, work your core, and relieve tension in your shoulders. This class geared specifically toward the mature body, those with physical limitations, and/or those looking to improve their overall sense of well-being. *Note: This practice is done with the support of the chair, either seated or standing.
